A gueuze is a beer made from blending “old” lambics, up to three years old, with a “new” lambic that has just finished its main fermentation. The traditional mash program for a lambic is a turbid mash, involving both infusions and decoctions to step the mash through a variety of temperatures. The mash in the all-grain version is a simplified version of this.
As members of the Bock(bier) family, Eisbocks have all the characteristics
of a typical strong beer, only more so. They are much maltier and smoother
even than the Dopplebocks. Essentially, Eisbocks are "iced strong beers," becuase they are frozen at the end of their maturation period (which separates out water in the form of crystals that can be removed).
